I just found an STK300 and can't seem to find an STK500 anywhere. I am thinking that the STK300 will provide me with a way to learn the AVR command set with a processor that will not soon put a ceiling on creativity. The built in A/D is another appeal of the AtMega line.
I was going to fo the way of the basic stamp until I learn't of AVR's and now just need direction on which way to go to begin.
Thanks for your help.
